12.23.09 - Work.. sort of...

I am at work - but it is so dead that I don't think I can call it work...
Ugh - so tired of the winter light and crowded room!! Here are my boots:

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

I am over even commenting on the state of the room.. grrr. All of the furniture is on CL today - cross your fingers...

12.21.09 -Work, irritation...

Ah look, here I am in the crap pile that was once my very own little room.. grrr....
You can't tell, but I am wearing these shoes.

12.18.09 - Work, Play, etc..

I honestly just put this up so you can see how bad my room is! :( Now I have like a whole extra bed set crammed in there. Impossible to take good pics of my outfit. (eggplant long cardi, skinny jeans, brown boots, crusty look.)
At least we get the afternoon off today for holiday merriement.

12.17.09 - Work, Mess...

Sigh... I lost my dressing room again... this time to our Master Bedroom Set which is going to be put on Craigslist soon since our new one arrived today (I think)... here is the mirror that matches our old set - as you can see, it (along with all the other pieces of the set) is now crammed into the guest room, jacking up my "getting ready" area.
Also, I loved this skirt all freaking summer long.. now - not so much. Go figure.

12.16.09 -Work, Cocktails

Um, that is actually me - not (as it looks like) Suzanne Sommers' fat, nerdy, can't-QUITE -pull-it-all-together sister from Three's Company.
WTF? I have a Happy Hour tonight that I just DO NOT see myself wearing this for.. What up, dumpy!?

Monday, December 14, 2009

Does my hair look stupid? My bangs are growing out and sometimes it is annoying to have them flapping against my face and poking me in the eyes.
Also, can I do a product rave that will get me widely laughed at (and possibly ridiculed since so many folks think that shopping there HAS TO BE a belief statement or whatever).
Anyway, these jeans? They are Baby Phat for Walmart.. Serious. And I don't care what ANYONE says about it, these are the most flattering, well-fitting jeans I have possibly ever had on my body. I have NEVER felt better about myself in jeans, and that includes the summer I had the mysterious bacteria and couldn't eat anything and was a size double zero! NEVER. I am going back to horde more. I am in love with them.
Don't judge me - these jeans are freaking awesome.

12.13.09 - Cookie Exchange

Ready for the Cookie Exchange!! (see, my shirt is the same color as Cookie Monster!)

12.12.09 - In My Kitchen

I'm wearing the apron my Cooking Class gave me as I bake up a storm for my Cookie Exchange tomorrow!
(And Yes, I did sing the "funky hat" song to myself when I put it on.)

12.11.09 - Actually

I ended up wearing this to dinner - I have on flat black boots..
I was cold and wanted something cuddly.

12.11.09 - Work, Dinner and Drinks

Work... work work work.
But wait! It's Friday!! Hooray!!
Tonight, dinner and drinks at my 'hood fave, LaLa's with The Hub. Can't wait!

12.10.09 - Work, craft time fun

Seriously. I have just been lazy about lighting lately.. sorry - but it is a total case of SBDD (Same Boots, Different Day) with these beauties anyway:
After work tonight I get to go help make pretty award certificates to be used as part of the cookie exchange I am going to this weekend! I love the holiday season, you can go to a fabulous cocktail party one night, and a few days later you are exchanging cookies and snuggling babies while drinking cocoa... So many wonderful ways to celebrate the season with people you love!

12.9.09 - Work, No Boys Allowed Dinner

Aww, you can't see my cutie- patootie flat suede boots.. boo.. :(
Good thing there will be wine and cooking for me tonight - I am severely cranky!

12.8.09 -Work

So the high temp today is going to be 8 degrees.. I have on tall boots, and I basically go from parking garage to parking garage without being ever "outside" (except in my car). Still, my legs are cold today!

12.7.09 - Work

Whoa.. boring, blah, and blobby..
Outfit = FAIL!

Friday, December 4, 2009

Oh And..

Everybody wave to my mommy, who is now a reader of ...and I wore this. (Here we are in one of my favorite pics of us!)
Hi Maude - love you!!!

12.4.09 -Work, Friday, HOORAY!

Oh Dear, that is a big pile of junk on the bed behind me. Sorry!
Oh well, it is Friday, weekend is positively ROARING into town - our annual holiday gathering is tomorrow night, and I have on a top that is once again, oh-so-ruffle-eh... All is well, junk pile included.

12.3.09 - Work

Back at work. It is cold outside. Serious.
(BTW - I am damn glad I grabbed these PayLess Boots at the begining of the season, because I am wearing them in a terrible lot of these pics!)

11.30.09 - Work

I think this dress is super cute - but I have gotten some crazy looks..
Then again, maybe I just have something stuck in my teeth?

Product RAVE - InStyler

I picked up an InStyler yesterday at Bed Bath and Beyond (thank you, 20% off coupon that expired years ago!) and I believe that this is the beginning of a beea-utiful friendship!
And this is how much I love it... so much I am willing to post my janky "before" photo so that you can see the magic it worked for me. Before:
Purdy, Purdy hair. It actually did what it says it will on the crazy infomercial! It made my hair shiny and straight without crushing it. It didn't kink or crease or any of that other weird stuff that flat irons do, it didn't yank my hair like my big curling iron does. I even TRIED to get it to make funny bends or marks in my hair - and nope! Still came out fine.
It is going to take me a while to get some speed working with this, but that would be true of any new tool, I suppose. But the results are just too good to ever go back... I am a changed woman. Everything else is going into the storage unit downstairs - this sucker is all I need for great hair now.
I can't wait to try curling with it, and also adding volume - but it was my first day using it, so I figured "baby steps" right?
Great tool -serious - just fab.

11.25.09 - Work, Errands

I couldn't take my eyes off of my cute little ball of Potter-pie fluff long enough to get a good pic, I guess. Still stuck on my " belted jeans and a girly blouse" look, evidently.

Have to say tho, this bow reminds me of Col. Saunders...

"Oh yer goin' to buh-ie mah chickehn..." (my impersonation of Stuart from So I Married An Axe Murderer impersonating Col Saunders)

11.24.09 -Work, Cocktails

Thank goodness for HH with the girls tonight!
Incidently, I do love my longer hair, but it gets caught in EVERYTHING. And when it is wet, it sticks to EVERYTHING.
It is going to take some getting used to, I guess.

11.23.09 -Work

Short week but bound to be busy as heck for these three days! What makes me feel better? Ruffles, of course.
Wish I had a better shot of my shoes -platform wedge suade loafers. They make me pretty happy too.

Saturday, November 21, 2009

11.21.09 -Date night!

Sparkly top and Collin Stuart peeptoes for dinner and drinks at Caveau with The Hub! (YAY!)

11.20.09 - Work, WEEKEND!

Hooray for Fridays!! I have had this top for a while, but it is still a favorite.. love the splash of bright yellow!

11.18.09 - Work, Meeting

I have an HOA board meeting after work today. Not. Happy.
But, I am wearing my "don't eff with me" Nine West platform pumps today, so maybe that will help.

11.17.09 -Work

Ahh, my shirt is sooo Ruffle-eh!

11.16.09 - Work, Nephew growing too fast

Here is me, notice I have my dressing room back - hooray! AND I *think* my shoulder is getting better, notice I can actually comb my hair again!? Big day.

It is also a big day because nephew Vaughn is 4 months old today:
Look at how big! I have GOT TO get myself on a plane to Indy and see this kid again, soon. Aunt Keri loves you, buddy... not too fast, ok?

11.11.09 - Work, HH, 1982?

Um, does this outfit look like the '80s threw up on me? Because I have been-there-done-that and really don't want to travel too far back down that road again... This looks like I am on pretty thin ice, in my opinion.
(and excuse the wad of Potter's hair on the carpet in the background.. apparently he had just had a good "snarf" in that spot or something..)

11.10.09 - Work, HH, I give up..

Oh For Gosh Sakes, I give up...

This is a cute outfit and the morning shadows on the patio of The TreeHouse just don't do it justice.. I have on my eggplant skirt from this post, my grey sparkely top from this post, and black tights, flats, and cardi... Potter's tush behind me is making me look deformed in this picture, and the shadow kind of makes it look like I don't have anything on my bottom half...the whole thing is a photography FAIL.

I have been informed that I will not get my dressing room mirror (or good access to my closet for that matter) until Friday night! ARGGGGGGG! Good thing that I have happy hour this evening - I could go for some drinks and giggling!

11.8.09 - Brunch

Brunch with girlfriends is possibly my favorite of all possible weekend activities... I love a lazy late-morning meal shared while sipping (ok, slugging) Mimsies and sharing stories of the week that's passed.
AND - the reason you are seeing me playing with my camera's self-timer for the first time EVAH, is because my dressing room is once again a construction zone while The Hub has new closet floors installed (you see the level of the obsession now? Scary.) So no mirror for me. And VERY limited access to my clothes. :(
TO BRUNCH, STAT!! Auntie Mame needs a Mimsie.
